Conservative Americans serving in the White House and Congress, along with several prominent public figures, made their way to Jerusalem Monday to witness the historic opening of the U.S. Embassy in Israel’s capital city.
President Trump sent a high-level White House delegation — which included Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump, and Ambassador David Friedman, among others — to commemorate the opening of the embassy.

Today we dedicated the new #USEmbassyJerusalem, a longtime promise to the American & Israeli people. As Jared shared today “While many Presidents before him have backed down from their pledge… this President delivered. Because when President Trump makes a promise, he keeps it.” pic.twitter.com/4iNdozAiRF

The establishment of our embassy in Jerusalem fulfills long-standing US policy as enacted by the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995. It was an honor to be there at this historic occasion! Thanks President Trump for being first president to honor his promise to establish this embassy. pic.twitter.com/LOiVGrIWyM
